35-50mm spacer. I personally wouldn't use a spacer that big.

Not wider necessarily, just a lower offset. I've seen some Z's running negative offsets.

Offset is everything!!!

Lol

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel.

Maxima's tend to require a higher offset, Z's require a lower offset. Every time you purchase wheels you need to know the offset because that will determine if the wheel is sunken in (high offset) flush (mid offset) poke (low offset). Every model is different thou. My wheels are a +25 which poke on the maxima, but if you were to put them on your Z I'm pretty sure they'll just be flush if that.

It depends what look you going for? How wide do you want 8.5, 9.5, 20.5. If I had a Z I'll look at some 19x10.5 all around or even 19x11.5 in the rear. Offset would be in probably in the 10-25 range. Try searching the Z forums and see what offsets there running.

i was thinking of doing 20x10 all around just because i found an amazing deal on wheels, they were pretty damn nice and the guy was selling them for 900 with brand new tires, but he said 20x10 wouldnt fit without body work (excluding fender roll), as of now my rears are perfect, i think theyre 19x9.5 but the fronts is what kills me, i think the fronts are 19x8 or 8.5, they came with the car so i dont know much about them, im not trying to go extreme hellaflush but something nice and fitted, maybe like a 19x9.5 all around, balling on a budget sucks lol, my car is at the shop getting painted matte white, if it wasnt for the paint job i woulda defintely copped some varrstoens atleast.


these are the wheels i was getting a deal on..or atleast i think i was

Just a FYI, people on the Z forums do not like seeing 350z on 20's. It's like here with 22's on a Maxima lol. Mod the car to your liking but be ready for ppl to tell you to get smaller wheels.

Like I told you those Z guys don't mess around with there wheels, a lot of ppl run Volks, Works, VIP Modular etc. Especially the hellaflush crowd. You stepped in a different league than with the Max, your in the major league now lol.

lol bro tell me about it!!!! and i know i wouldnt want too run 20's but they sure as hell look nicer then the 19's i have right now lol, i dont even dislike my wheels, just the front, if they were 19x9.5 all around i woulda been happy! i was looking at the prices of the wheels i have right now and theyre above 1600, i asked myself why the hell would someone pay 1600+ for these wheels lol =[, but i know im on the z forums and those guys do not mess around, theyre running 3-5k wheels and switch them up every other month, thats why i never post anything on there forum, just read, they make fun of noobs too much lol, luckily the stance gr coilovers im getting are 1200 not 3k lol, i really need to find a good deal on wheels, im trying to get a second job to get a nice pair of works or vossens! lol

I've heard good things about stance coilovers. Just save up and get some good quality wheels, don't rush into some wheels just cause there cheap. Especially if you want a hellaflush look, those guys can be mean and make fun of ppl just cause they don't have "name brand wheels".

yeah bro tell me about it, they can be major a-holes when it comes to having cheap wheels which sucks the most because i dream of rolling with low n slow, but thats not happening anytime soon , as far as the coilovers i got that covered, ive also heard stance coilovers are definitely worth the money, thats the only thing discouraging me from going to hellaflush, i dont want to go without my car, but if i do take my car the rest of the flush z's will make me look and feel like a worthless piece of crap! lol

The rears are 20s.. Maybe that's why they don't say anything because he's not 20 all around.. I'd say if you like your 20s all around then get your 20s who cares what they say it's your liking and your money and z you can't please the all just my opinion yeah I thinks it's his camber with the armorall plus the sun plus angle of pic but I could be wrong lol and looking forward to your new paint job keep us posted! I'm sure your z will be as great as your max!

lol yeah it looks like different sized wheels, i dont really like 20's on the z either but the deal was awesome, i guess ill stick to what i have now til i can afford a set of wheels thatll suit my liking instead of compensating with something im not too comfortable, and ill definitely keep you guys posted with my Z
